“Mixed bag”
Reviewed March 20, 2012

River Street is a combination of beautiful old buildings, some very nice restaurants, and tacky shore-type stores selling t-shirts. The walking is difficult unless you have the right shoes - it's all cobblestones. The stairways leading to River St. are steep, so prepare for a hike down and back up.

“A Nice stroll for shopping and eating”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

It was a beautiful place to just walk along shop, eat and drink...very pleasant and nice with the history thrown in. Wish we had more time to try some of the restaurants.

“Awesome”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

Love this place! Make sure you walk on the side with the businesses, if not you will be harassed about buying the "Savannah Rose" which is the same thing you find in Wilmington NC and Charleston SC. Views are great. Parking can be tricky. Don't miss Waving Girl and new Globe. Also, alcohol can be carried on the riverfront, so be aware. It's fun if you drink, it's funny if you don't. Stop by visitor's center for info on the city, take the free trolley up and down the riverfront.

“Not what I expected but good shops”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

This was not the experience I had hoped for. It was dirty, grungy, and old. I would only take children here during the day.
